As part of its growing commitment to the performing arts on Nantucket, the Dreamland currently offers theatrical opportunities for students of all ages.
Young Actors Theater Company serves children between the ages of 5 and 14 in a week long program that culminates in a brief 15 – 25 minute performance. A cast of no more than 25 students work hand in hand with Dreamland Education Staff to create props, sets, and costume pieces for their performances. This program is a wonderful way to introduce young people to the magic of theater and the art of storytelling.
In February of 2014 the Young Actors Theater Company will present Pinkalicious the Musical – an hour long production with a cast of 19 students between the ages of 7 and 14.
Junior Company is a program for students between the ages of 6 and 14. In this program students are gently moved through the audition process. All who pre-register are given an audition packet which provides students with all the tools and information needed for a successful audition. This program is perfect for students who are looking to develop their performance skills while having fun with a larger group of friends.
In Summer of 2013 the Junior Company performed Beauty & the Beast Jr.
Senior Company was created to extend the growth and performance opportunities for students who have aged out of our Young Actors and Junior Companies. During Summer 2013, the Senior Company broke the mold – students between the ages of 14 and 21 received first class training in the art of auditioning. This two-week intensive workshop included mentoring from a professional director and Broadway producer. At the end of two weeks, students performed in two showcases that highlighted their developing talent.
